printing money. so what would change that environment? it looks like you're looking for something to come in and be a catalyst for change, what could that be? speaker that is exactly the point. throughout history when central banks have done with the fed and other central banks are doing, to monetize debt, your currency would get weak or your bond market would get weak egos ultimately it is inflationary. what the dollar being doing battle against the pound, against the yen and the euro, the currency market is not going to be doing that. it will not be the catalyst. it has to be the bond market itself. the 10-year note still at 250 when it is quite clear the fed is not going to taper. you have to ask yourself why are rates there? a process has to start somewhere, so i believe the bond market is going to be the catalyst which will eventually get the insane policies. connell: for somebody saying i follow what they'll is saying saying so far, next question they are asking themselves as we know. is it a certain yield, some sort of a trigger or a sign, how will they know the process is underway
